|(3/29/17) Hutton will defend the crease against the Coyotes on Wednesday, Andy Strickland of Fox Sports Midwest reports.|
Hutton has made just two starts in the Blues' last 12 outings, but he secured wins in both of those matchups while posting a 2.00 GAA and .909 save percentage. St. Louis should earn a playoff spot, barring a significant collapse, which could mean a few extra outings for the 31-year-old in order to ensure No. 1 netminder Jake Allen is well rested for the postseason. With the struggling 'Yotes in town, it was a perfect time for coach Mike Yeo to put Hutton between the pipes.
